Nice job putting on the decals. I can never get the straight. 

The secret to putting them on straight is to mist a little water onto the decal and the tractor. Then you can move them around until they are straight. Squeegee the water out and let them dry.

Extremely nice! We always  have to ask, what type and color code of paint did you use?

 

Interesting idea putting the stack off the existing muffler.  I suspect you may have started something.

WoW.  Looks super nice.  Great attention to detail and nice finish on the paint.

That stack looks nice, I hope you don't have any low tree branches.

to oliver2-44, my painter bud mark uses some type of electronic paint scan tool. usually under a decal or some such place where the sun never got to. this scan goes into the computer and tells him what shade of red to use. i'll talk to him this weekend and report back.   the red was quite pricey.  but, me likey!   no low tree branches cleat. your 520's look great!  regards mike in mass.

hi gary, thanks for the compliment. just after the pics were taken i used the rake to smooth out an area where i had 13 spruce trees cut down. i had the stumps ground down and the area was a mess with big holes and wood chips everywhere. the rake left the area smooth and looking good.  of course the 312 was flithy so i gave it a quick bath and blow dry with my hand held leaf blower. most of my tractors are workers. (BTW i work at hsd)  regards mike in mass.
